Mon, Jul 23 at 5:30pm
BendFilm Presents Sundance favorite DAMSEL starring Robert Pattinson (Twilight) and Mia Wasikowska (Only Lovers Left Alive).
It's the Wild West, circa 1870. Samuel Alabaster, an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope. As his group traverses the west, the once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.
The Zellner Brothers' follow up to the BendFilm 2014 Festival favorite Kumiko the Treasure Hunter "...goes its merrily deranged way with prankish enthusiasm and a genuine sense of the absurd. Pattinson and Wasikowska fire up the game so well...In a Hollywood of formulaic hack jobs, the Zellners know how to keep you guessing," (Rolling Stone).
DAMSEL has a 95% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
"DAMSEL is a deadpan art-western prank, a sly fusion of classical technique and postmodern sensibility." The Los Angeles Times
"A movie that turns the classic western into something wackily eccentric and entertainingly original." The New York Times.
